Many thanks, we're all still on holiday mode. That's one mystery solved, now if only we could find the Pru we'd really start the new year off right.
I feel like we had this at one time, that someone had confirmed it, but it's not in the wiki that I can see.

My own notes have...
472.06250 / 131.8 / Ops (Security)
461.50000 / 146.2 / Engineering
484.01250 / 146.2 / Custodian

For 200 Clarendon (Hancock Tower), I have
464.72500 / 107.2 / Security
463.77500 / 114.8 / Engineering
Those I read off of the P Touch label on the repeater on the 62nd floor about 5 years ago.
And 461.7250 / D464 / Custodians, but I have it that I am not sure.

Much appreciated, I'll give them a try and see what I come up with. I so far haven't had any luck with 472.0625 from my house so I have a feeling if it's still in use than they're operating a lot lower power than their license allows.

These systems utilize antennas designed for in building coverage instead of a big stick on the roof meant to cover a wide area. They may be running licensed power, but to antennas only designed to cover inside the building.

I should've realized, especially as it occupies the bottom of one of the tallest buildings in Boston that it probably wouldn't make it much further out of there.

I made a couple of corrections. (Really 2).

After re-positioning the antenna I did hear some traffic on 472.0625 that was definitely from the Pru. While searching for something else I also found that the Avalon at Prudential is now DMR, I'll add that to the Wiki with a few other business finds.
